Many first-time visitors to Xian are seeking the massive terra-cotta army standing guard over the tomb of China’s first emperor. Xian was known in ancient times as Chang’an (meaning Long Peace), and was one of the largest and most cultured cities in the world.

Not surprisingly, this creative explosion coincided with the height of trade on the Silk Road, bringing Turkish fashions to court and foreigners from as far away as Persia and Rome.
Shanghai is a city of two faces. It is home to some of the world’s tallest skyscrapers, miles of luxury goods shops, and scores of trendy bars and restaurants.
